The security week: Company re-launch, CCTV training, and an angry rant

Security news is the name of the game (actually, I call it ‘The Security News Game’) so let’s get talking about some security news! OK.

So we’ve got a security pro coming out of retirement to relaunch his business and maybe, just maybe, create a few jobs in the process! A bit of a hero? Possibly.

There’s also the latest look at our CCTV End User Survey – this time we’re examining the responses to the training provided by installers or manufacturers. Fascinating.

I went and had a bit of a rant about US-based moron Tim Larkin, who is planning to teach ‘How To Kill’ classes in the UK. In a nutshell: I think he’s a bit of a wally!

Elsewhere, we’ve got SMT Online editor Brian Sims with his SMT Online Editor’s View; the much-feared massive rise in tractor and quad bike theft; and a little bit o’ holography for ya. Holla.

I’m afraid I am to blame for this: it’s our Song About Security. And it’s Whitney Houston. You know the one. And speaking of ‘legends’, here’s something involving Chris de Burgh.

And in case you missed it yesterday: a very entertaining video of some karaoke fun. Have a top notch weekend.

More licensing – and CCTV training

Guten tag! It’s Monday, so it must be time for a story about Security Industry Authority licensing consultations. Should there be one card to cover all licences? What do you think, buddy?

We’ve also got the latest piece on our CCTV End User Survey, where end users made their thoughts known on the training provided by installers and manufacturers. Have a good hard look at the thing!

Of course, it wouldn’t be Monday September 14 if we didn’t have a story about the increase in tractor and quad bike theft. Damn you, pesky recession!

There are also items on the impact of hate crime; and some new drug detection technology.

Did you know that IFSEC India 2009 is happening soon? You didn’t? That’s a shame. You do now. And you’re welcome!
